Strawberrys..oh boy!

Post  Signey on 4/4/2013, 10:39 pm

So my last freeze date is April 15th, but yesterday I received my strawberry plants. I went to the website as instructed, but there was no info there on what to do when you get the plants EARLY! Anyone know how I should care for these between now and planting time?
Thanks so much!

If the bed is ready then plant them out and cover with remay or even an old sheet on frosty nights. Strawberries are pretty tough and can take some cool weather. I planted my strawberries 2 weeks ago and we have had some mid 30s nights. The plants are looking good and I see signs of new growth.

Are they bare root type plants? The flyer with my bare root plants from Burpee said to keep them in the refrigerator in the produce drawer until ready to plant.
